How I Restored My Hair After Having A Baby

I have seen so much progress in my hair over the past year, that I wanted to share how I restored my hair after having a baby and a bit of my hair care journey. My locks have been through so much having a baby, and I remember a year ago feeling so down, frustrated, […]

Wilson’s on Washington With Alterna Hair

After I had Piper, my hair went through a major self destruction discovery period. Postpartum was rough on my locks. I lost so much hair, and it started to become dull and brittle. I quickly realized my drugstore shampoo was not going to cut it anymore, and it was time to invest in some quality hair products. […]

Messy Bubble Ponytail

I’ve been playing around with different wet-set techniques to give myself some curls overnight. They’re great in theory, but some are a little trickier than others and can lead to some crazy morning hair. Which is annoying since part of the point of wet-sets are to save time in the morning! On this particular day, my hair curled in the front, but the back was almost completely straight. Ugh. But…

Romantic Half-Up Twists

Step One: Start with styled or curly hair. Step Two: Take a small section of hair from either side of your head. Twist them and tie them together into a small ponytail with an elastic. Step Three: Take a small section of hair beneath your twists on the left side of your head. Twist it a few times, then pull it above where you tied your hair off and under…

Milkmaid Twists

When my hair was longer, milkmaid braids were my go-to style. They keep your neck cool in the summer, keep the wind out of your face on a blustery day, and when you have the hang of them, only take a couple of minutes to do. My hair is still a bit too short to pull my signature style off, but I’m getting closer to that look by doing a…

Easy Messy Updo for Shorter Hair

Whenever I cut my hair shorter, people inevitably seem to say, "Oh that will be so much easier!" The idea is usually that shorter hair will lead to a shorter morning routine and less upkeep. But in fact, I find shorter hair is so much harder to deal with—and I don’t think I’m alone! With short hair, you can’t just throw it up in a bun or ponytail (unless you…

Dutch Braided Bangs

I’m pretty indecisive with my hair. I don’t think I’m an indecisive person in life in general, but yeah, when it comes to my hair, I do not have it figured out. Sometimes I want it short, other times long; I ping-pong between red, blonde, and even dabble in blue, but the thing I am the MOST indecisive about has to be my bangs. (Or fringe if you’re feeling British.)…

Vintage Pin-Curls for Short Hair · Tutorial

It seemed like it was about time to finally post another update on my current endeavors with vintage hairstyling!  You can read through all my older posts about my various triumphs and failures under the "Hair" label.

To re-cap briefly, I have fine hair that holds a curl quite a bit better than it did 3 years ago, but still requires some extra care and attention to achieve "curly" status.

A Five Minute Party Updo

As a kid I always imagined the holidays would be full of fancy dresses and elaborate parties when I was an adult. You know, like an old Ginger Rogers film, because you know, that was a realistic goal. The reality is quite different. When my friends and family do get together around the holidays, it’s usually quite casual. Still, I love any excuse to get a bit fancy. So I…

A Faux Braid Updo for Shorter Hair

A pull-through faux braid was one of my favorite styles when I had longer hair. It’s a great style for making your hair look really thick, and I just realized I can still do this style even though I chopped most of my hair off. Score! Updos that work for shorter hair are so great if you’re perpetually "hair bored" like myself. Boredom drove me to get a bob, but…

Easy Criss Cross Braided Bun

My favorite hairstyle is an easy hairstyle! I like to air dry my hair because yes, it is a bit better for your hair, but really it’s because most days I can’t be bothered to blow dry. Too much effort! So while I love playing with my hair and trying new styles out, if the steps are too complicated or it takes too long—I’m out! Thankfully there are a lot…
